Abstract:   The stochastic six-vertex model is a prototype for a discrete random surface. In this talk we describe several asymptotic properties for this model, including its limit shapes and local statistics (translation-invariant Gibbs measures). We further explain how these results for the stochastic six-vertex model substantially differ from their counterparts for other classical random surface models, such as dimers or Ising crystals.
